is that paul ryan and patty murray, the lead budget negotiators in congress are trying to hammer out a budget deal that would actually encompass 2014 and 2015. what's happening right now the is that it seems like they're pretty close to a deal but it would only reverse about one-third of the cuts under sequestration which are $110 billion a year. beak we're looking at a continuation of more than you know two-thirds of the cuts going forward. so i think that that is going to have a big impact on both military and domestic programs. >> okay. and can you be a little more specific both military and domestic but who gets impacted if these cuts stick around? >> basically it's still unclear. once that they agree on the top line numbers, it goes to congressional appropriators to decide how to distribute that funding. so basically there's going to be a sort of mad scramble between different groups between transportation and housing and you know, every sort of government program to figure out what piece of that pie they're going to get. >> okay. suzy khimm, thank you very much. >>> the american girl st
